[ no audio ] >> to washington. president trump responding on twitter saying does this guy have anything better to do with his life? hard to believe that south korea and japan will put up with this much longer. perhaps china will put a heavy move on north korea and end this nonsense once and for all. nbc's ali is in london this morning. good morning, ali. this isn't the first time north korea has tested missiles on the fourth of july. >> good morning, dara. that's right. they tested a flurry of missiles in 2009 on the fourth of july and this latest test, the 11th one this year, seems to be designed to have maximum geopolitical effect. again, on the fourth of july, just after president trump spoke with the leaders of south korea
and japan on sunday about how to deal with north korea, and ahead of the g-20 summit later this week. according to u.s. pacific command there was a land-based missile that was fired from near panghyon airfield. it flew for about 37 minutes. japanese officials say the missile may have landed in waters claimed by japan as its exclusive economic zone. the u.s. and south korea and japanese officials say the missile reached an altitude of 1500 miles, which would be longer and higher than any other similar test previously reported. it covered a distance of almost 600 miles. u.s. and south korean officials say it was an intermediate missile but north korea claimed they've tested an intercontinental ballistic missile that conflicts with u.s. reports and south korean reports. if confirmed to be a test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile it would be a significant step forward in developing a nuclear armed
missile. nonetheless it seems to have been a very successful test. dara? >> ali, thank you so much for that. back home, here president trump wakes up in the white house this morning just in time to ring in his first fourth of july as commander in chief. and with a packed agenda as president trump prepares for an overseas trip that is sure to make waves including a face to face with russia's vladimir putin. hallie jackson brings us up to speed. >> reporter: president trump not seen but heard from his new jersey home making calls and making waves with three international hot spots making headlines. in russia, europe and north korea. the president's first face-to-face meeting with vladimir putin, set for the sidelines of the g-20 summit this week. now today, new tough talk from the kremlin, a warning it's running out of patience with the diplomatic compounds the u.s. shut down as punishment for moscow's meddling in our election. an open question, as to whether
and how president trump will bring that up in his talk with putin. the president's already laying groundwork for conversations with france and germany on the phone with their leaders chancellor angela merkel acknowledging those discussions won't be easy, given u.s. positions on trade and climate. and the president also calling japan and china this holiday weekend to focus on north korea. the u.s. signaling it will get tougher on pyongyang, strongly suggesting beijing do the same. but president trump today is wading into a different international controversy, over a little boy named charlie in london who has a rare terminal disease. his parents want to take him to the u.s. for treatment. his doctors want to take the boy off life support. >> he's still fighting over there, believe me. he's still fighting. >> reporter: president trump tweeted the u.s. would be delighted to help charlie if possible. his most recent tweet coming after several others too. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: including one featuring a cnn logo, a fake fight generating real
controversy and threatening to overshadow that critical overseas trip. >> with this president the attention he draws with his tweets, he can do certainly some damage with that, but he could do some great good in advancing u.s. interests on the foreign policy domain. >> reporter: the president on-line also is taking another jab at what he calls the fake news media, while taking credit for some strong wall street numbers, but worth remembering he may end up curbing his twitter habit when he heads overseas. remember the first foreign trip, he hardly tweeted at all, instead letting his message abroad speak for itself. >> hallie jackson, thank you. so now some breaking news on this july 4th new jersey's budget standoff ended and the day's long shutdown is lifted. governor chris christie just signed a $34.7 billion budget into law. this after the state senate and legislature came to an agreement sending a final budget to him without any line item vetoes that were major concerns for the democratic majority.
the resolution caps off days of suspended services across the state including the shuttering of state beaches and parks over the extended holiday weekend. a move made all the more difficult for governor christie after pictures emerged of him and his family at a state beach that was unavailable to resident deuce to the shutdown. still christie, known for his brash persona is defending his decision while brushing off the controversy. >> i think i've proven over the last eight years i don't really care about political optics. i care about right and wrong. i think i've proven over the last eight years i have a choice to make between my family and political optics i will pick my family. >> state park beaches and other recreational areas are opened to the public today. the battle for mosul is entering its final stages and iraqi forces are close to fully recapturing the city that they advanced on a few pockets that remained under isis control and a first look after three years of occupation. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel reports from mosul.
>> reporter: the final push is on to clear isis from what was its key stronghold, the city of mosul. we were with u.s. backed iraqi troops on the front line. their fire is not precise. but overwhelming enough to allow them to advance. >> it's very close street fighting. we're on this rooftop here. they say that the isis villagers may be 50 meters ahead maximum. >> reporter: casualty rates among some iraqi units are at world war ii levels. >> we'll be able to just go. >> reporter: u.s. officials tell nbc news isis' hold on the city is down to less than half a square mile. >> you don't have a whole lot of visibility so it's rooftop to rooftop anywhere from 100 meters to 10 meters for those engagements. >> reporter: we're seeing the toll three years of isis occupation and this offensive have taken on mosul's people. more escaping and hiding among them, isis suicide bombers. the historic old city of mosul
has berazed to the ground, lostn ancient mosque that isis prized and then destroyed. and now this is all that's left of the mosque. it stood here for 850 years. it saw empire after empire and this was the seat of the so-called islamic caliphate. from that minnerette once flew the isis flag. it was here where abu bakr al baghdadedy announced the start of the caliphate. >> reporter: with yards remaining u.s. commanders tell nbc news the eyes are open to catch or kill any senior isis leaders that may still be in the city. richard engel reporting. americans will ring in the fourth celebrating the country's 241st birthday with millions looking to the nation's capitol. that's where hundreds of thousands are expected for the annual fireworks display and concert and they'll enjoy some of the country's most legendary musicians. ♪ let's go surfing now everybody is learning how come on with me ♪ >> yes, the beach boys performing one of their greatest
